E3 2021 is just a few days away now and we're starting to see news confirming the schedule for the weekend pick up. Nintendo has recently announced a Nintendo Direct and a Nintendo Treehouse Live are coming on June 15th. PC Gamer also offered us a run-down of their PC Gaming Show.
Now, though, Capcom has confirmed when their E3 2021 showcase is due to take place and what's coming.

Xbox, Bethesda, & Nintendo Confirm Shows
Last week, Xbox and Bethesda confirmed that they would be hosting a joint Games Showcase and now we know what Nintendo has planned for the event!
Nintendo is going to be bringing around four hours of content to E3 2021 on June 16th. A 40-minute Nintendo Direct is going to be followed by a three-hour Nintendo Treehouse Live and we can hardly contain our excitement.
EA Play NOT In E3 2021 Schedule?
The powers that be, and everyone at Electronic Arts, has just announced that they're bringing back EA Play Live on July 22nd, 2021. While this is great news, it doesn't exactly fit with the E3 2021 schedule.
What gives, right? We thought EA was going to be at E3 2021!
Well, they still might be. We don't have a complete picture below, but we do know that they are rumoured to still be appearing at the end of the event.
We can only assume that the EA presentation at E3 2021 is going to be a bit lighter, with EA Play offering us deeper dives on any upcoming titles.
E3 2021 is going to take place over several days, from June 12th to June 15th, so there's plenty of announcements still to come! We'll make sure we keep this updated as and when more information is revealed.
E3 Start Date & Duration
E3 announced in a tweet on April 6 that this year's event will be taking place from June 12 until June 15.
Several of the world's leading video game companies are already signed up, such as Nintendo, Xbox, Ubisoft, PC Gamer, and many more!
Sony/PlayStation are still nowhere to be seen, though, and you can read more about that here.
How To Watch
E3 2021 will be available for free to stream to your device. It will be available both through an online portal and a mobile app.
There will also be live streams available on company-specific YouTube and Twitch channels. You can check out all the links you'd ever need for E3 2021 on our dedicated page here.
